WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In preparation for the New Year, a Village housewife joins businesspeople, locals, and tourists as they question what matters to them. As technology continues to fascinate, isolate, and shape our lives, how do we encounter our New York City? Village, My Home, written by Marcina Zaccaria, embraces the very human experience of what it means to live and survive in the 21st century against the backdrop of cultural and political uncertainties. The play, written in a sequence of interlocking testimonials with movement interludes, captures the dreams and hopes of men and women who wish to explain their wisdom, even in the most troubling moments. In a chaotic business world, do we know the difference between astrophysics and Buddha? Can it all be solved with yoga? Featuring eight characters at various points of their lives, Village, My Home questions how we choose New York City and what keeps us there. James Redfern directs.
